Rachael Davis

Rachel Davis is a mixed media artist, born and bred in New York City, and thrilled to call the San Francisco Bay Area home. In her portraiture celebrating women, figurative work exploring memory, and in Asian inspired abstraction, Davis’s work invites the viewer to search beneath richly layered and textured surfaces. She is also pulled to beauty for it’s own sake, and to pure play and abandon. The freedom to move back and forth between mediums and moods is central to keeping joy at the helm of her creative process.

Davis received her undergraduate degree at Barnard College, Columbia University, and, as Ruth Davis Kalb, her PhD in Clinical Psychology at Adelphi University’s Derner institute. She’s been mentored in Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) for twenty plus years and has studied classical portraiture as well as mixed media art and printmaking. Davis’s work has been juried into shows nationally and internationally, into the de Young Open exhibition, the Salon at the Triton Museum, and is in collections across the United States, in Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
